Brandon Lang (Matthew McConaughey) was a pro football hopeful whose career ended prematurely following a physical injury.  With no other marketable skills, Lang worked at a Las Vegas call center advising sports gamblers on their best odds.  His success rate eventually earns him the attention of sports talk show host Walter Abrams (Al Pacino) who promptly hires him.

Lang quickly becomes Abrams' right hand man, at least until his picks grow increasingly inaccurate.  Soon their father-son relationship is plagued by suspicion, as Brandon's days of lavish living slowly come to an end.
